Four years ago, Android Wear, the operating system for smartwatches developed by Google, was launched on the market. Today, after so much time and having been renamed Watch OS, it has finally received an official Spotify application.
This is what the service itself has announced in its official blog, stating that this app will arrive on November 4th. So far, what Spotify users had available was a standard player that worked the same with any application. That meant having to take out the phone, put on the music, and then yes, you could control the playback and pause the songs.
This new application is independent. While it will still be necessary to have Spotify installed on your mobile, you can now access music directly from the watch, which simplifies the task slightly. Also, among the available options offered by the app are a pause and continue playback, change songs, access the playlists, save them in the library and even play them on other devices through Spotify Connect. It also works with podcasts.
The firm has also taken the opportunity to announce its partnership with Fossil to bring its new release to the Fossil Gen 4 and the Michael Kors Access Runway. In any case, it can be used in any smartwatch that has Wear OS .
You just have to download the Spotify application on your mobile and have the smartwatch connected by Bluetooth. Soon, other Android apps will come across following the same way.
